Enquire about this venue


The London Canal Museum in King's Cross is a waterside heritage venue of character and interest hosting meetings, conferences, receptions, dinners and events on two accessible floors.


The London Canal Museum is just a five-minute walk from King's Cross station, one of the best-connected locations in Europe, and close to St. Pancras and Euston stations too.

The museum is an attractive heritage building built as warehouse for imported natural ice, and it has a fine timber roof and a great deal of character, on two floors.

We host dinners, receptions, award ceremonies, networking events, conferences and meetings in the evenings any day of the week, for up to 200 people.

We host daytime conferences on Mondays only, for up to 160 people.

We host breakfast meetings on any day of the week, ending by 10am.

We have a meeting room for up to 20 people (12 with tables) available any time, any day.

Catering is by the customer's choice of caterer. Customers may arrange their own food and alcohol to serve to guests with no corkage fees. We are well equipped for business events and can provide audio-visual equipment, lighting, glassware, bar and logistics staff, and more.
